From this study (2 weeks ago):
On phentermine for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, my Intraocular Pressure was 20-21. After switching to 50 mg Zoloft and 80mg Strattera, my Intraocular Pressure increased to 26. Could that be because of the prescription change?
From this study (1 month ago):
I feel weak and sick (but not really sick) in general. I'm worried.especially regarding the palpitations and tinnitus.
